How to Set Up a Signal Proxy Server

in #signal2 months ago

The internet is often controlled and censored in times of civil unrest. Governments can block certain services, like access to websites or apps, or they can even shut off the internet entirely.

That’s exactly what’s going on in Iran at the moment. The government has partially shut down the internet as a result of protests, and they have also blocked access to the secure and private messaging app, Signal.

There are ways we can help: Set up a proxy signal server that Iranians can connect to, allowing them to communicate privately and securely during a hostile situation.
